Official description
Jim was an ordinary earthworm who did very earthworm-like things, such as flee from crows and eat dirt. One day, during an outer space fight, a suit drops to Earth and falls around Jim. It mutates him into a large and intelligent (at least by earthworm standards) superhero. Play as Jim in this Sega Genesis classic. When Jim learns of the evil plans of Psy-Crow and Queen Slug-for-a-Butt, he decides to rescue Princess What's-Her-Name. Run, gun, swing on hooks by your head and launch cows at the interesting characters you meet along the way, such as Major Mucus, Chuck and Fifi, Evil the Cat, and Bob the Killer Goldfish.

Now this game was sweet :). This was one of the games to mix snot, senceless humour, great adventure, and an original character in 1 game... Your a little earthworm, who finds some suit , and yada yada yada, and becomes a powerful super hero... He does some very comical things when you let him sit there! (burps, shoots himself, uses himself as a jump rope ect ect). which is comical to watch. it can be at times very challenging, but will always keep you laughing. the graphix for the genesis version were 99% accurate to it's SNES counter part, although the music wasn't as good, it wasn't terrible :) this game is definately worth buying......i would like to see a 3d earthworm jim (like mario64) sometime in the future... :)
